toward a positive resolution? >> president obama and congressional democrats have been trying to make sure that voters have two distinct choices. they clearly chose president obama and democrats. they want to continue to rebuild this economy from the middle class out. they want to make sure when it comes to housing everybody has an opportunity to live the american gene and have a safe and secure roof over their heads. they want access to affordable healthcare. they want to make sure that they have strong retirement security and preserve our safety net program. those are the things that democrats have been fighting for, particularly relating for the economy. we want to take a common sense and balance approach that deals with targeted spending cuts as well as closing tax loopholes for the wealthiest americans. we need republicans to join us. they seem to be mired in extremism. to the best evidence as last week's the rnc meeting where they returned to the scene of the crime. we are expanding our map. they had their meeting at the hotel where mitt romney's so- called victory party was. th

do as they're told to kill obama care even if that means shutting down the federal government or else. fueling this is the right-wing base of the country that now commands the fears of republican congressmen far more than anything the weak john boehner can say or do or pretend to do or hope to do. here is a town hall meeting held by robert pettinger. pay close attention to who's calling the attention here. does this guy look anything like john boehner? even a little? >> real quick, easy question. this is what the tea party wants to know. will you vote with mike lee to defund obama care? yes or no? >> a thoughtful answer? >> i want yes or no. >> no. >> if any republican votes against it, does not get funded. that's a fact. >> it has to be signed by the president of the united states. >> will you make a stand -- >> shut down the government. >> do you think harry reid is going to pass that in the senate? >> it doesn't matter. >> we need to show the american people we stand for conservative values. >> i'm joined by democratic strategist steve mcmahon, and republican strategist john. it's

president obama, had been right the first time. the threat is alive and well, which sensible people knew all along. the scary parts aren't really the threats, but that officials say our response to the threat is a lesson learned from benghazi. the lesson is close up shop because we can't protect you. that's no lesson. either you bolster security or get the hell out of the hell holes, but you don't close up shop because sooner or later the sign in the door will go from closed to open and evil will return and it won't be there asking for directions. so kimberly, feeling delightful in green, they're closed until next saturday. at some point they have to reopen. then what do you do? >> people feel insecure about the ability of the united states to protect them, as you say, close up shop, close for business until we can figure something out or the chatter stops. that's when you're at the most vulnerable, as soon as you open back up again, that's when you're going to get hit. there's been a little activity in terms of predator strikes but no major casualties from that of any of the known leaders.
